Sleep help for our baby boy

Our second son was only sleeping 20 minutes during the day and fitfully at night, at five months old. He had a tough start with feeding problems and reflux and every day felt like we were just containing the next meltdown. With a two year old toddler to care for as well, I was utterly exhausted and anxious as there seemed no rest and hours of wakefulness in the middle of the night. I had a similar problem with my older son who after trying every sleep technique I could read about continued in this pattern until about a year old. Tina talked about working on getting my baby to sleep for an hour and a half in the day and I really didn't believe that would be possible. She spent time listening and looking and assessing things like his reflux issues and then made suggestions. I stuck with it for a couple of weeks and adapted slightly under Tina’s guidance, when the first ideas didn't work. I am absolutely amazed to see him sleeping for eight hours through the night now and through several 45 minute sleep cycles in the day. We are still a work in progress but I have the confidence now to get the little one to sleep. Tina is a warm and caring person. Both my boys love her and I wish I had known about her talents years ago! She has made such a significant improvement to our family.
